Kathryn Bernardo also thanks Angel Locsin for accepting the offer to be part of her upcoming soap with Daniel Padilla.
Kathryn Bernardo was one of the actresses that netizens have been talking about as someone who could play the iconic Filipino heroine Darna.
Angel Locsin officially begged off reprising the role of the famous fictional character recently due to her disc bulge condition.
After that announcement, netizens took it upon themselves to come up with potential stars who could take on the role. Among them were Sarah Geronimo, Maja Salvador, Kathryn, and Liza Soberano, to name a few.
Kathryn, during the press conference of her upcoming film with perennial partner Daniel Padilla titled Can’t Help Falling In Love, reiterated that she has a different priority as of the moment.
"Kung ma-consider ako na makapag-portray noon, thank you. Isang malaking role 'yon at very iconic si Darna, lalo na sa ating mga Filipina, sa aming mga babae,” she began.
“Sa ngayon talaga La Luna (Sangre) pa lang ang focus. Hindi ko alam. Basta, thank you kung maisip nila. I appreciate," she said.
La Luna Sangre is Kathryn and Daniel’s upcoming fantasy-romance-action soap, which happens to be the third installment of the hit fantaseryes Lobo and Imortal.
Angel, who was in Lobo and Imortal, will be part of Kathryn and Daniel’s fourth soap together.
“Noong nalaman ko 'yon, sobrang natuwa ako kasi parang may blessing nila. Sila ang original talaga. 'Yung pilot sila ang gagawa,” Kathryn confirmed.
She likewise shared that Angel would be doing some fight scenes for their soap.
“Alam naman natin na hindi na pwede si Ate Angel sa mga fight scenes but still gagawin niya ito for La Luna. Nakakatuwa kasi kita mo ang suporta ng lahat para sa La Luna Sangre kaya grabe ang pasasalamat," Kathryn said.
Daniel, for his part, also expressed his gratitude not only to Angel but also towards John Lloyd Cruz.
"Sobrang pasasalamat namin sa kanila at nagbigay sila ng oras. At sa gagawin nila ay napakalaking parte para doon sa teleserye kaya gusto naming magpasalamat ng buong puso kay Ms. Angel," he said.
The teaser for the Cathy Garcia-Molina soap, which is set to air this 2017, was released on Thursday evening, March 30, during the ABS-CBN Trade Event.
Mae Cruz-Alviar’s Can’t Help Falling In Love starring Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, together with Kristel Fulgar, Matteo Guidicelli and Janus del Prado, among others, will be hitting the theaters on April 15.
